CHNC challenge 19: photo inspiration ... with a prize

This week has been a strange one for me in some ways - in between other things I've had a massive craft sort out - and was determined not to make anything until it was all done -so it was a relief when I was able to sit down last evening and make my card for CHNC challenge 19, for which there is this inspiration photo:

I've concentrated on the stocking and the colour combo of red, green and gold - the circular sentiment is gold foiled, but it was difficult to get a photo. The stocking is one that was with a QVC kit two or three years ago. The strip of red and white paper is s.e.i winter song snow bubbles (the other side of the paper). I used little gold brads to secure the little candy cane charms. The flowers and the stocking top are very glittery.

I used the sketch given for the May challenge on Christmas cards all year round:
